Lalor steps down from CME

Peter Lalor stepped down last week as president of the Chamber of Minerals and Energy of WA.

The Sons of Gwalia executive chairman said the industry continued to focus on two ongoing core issues – safety and sustainability – but he was satisfied with other things he set out to achieve with CME chief executive Tim Shanahan.

Over the past two years, the chamber has sought to focus on issues and strategies in a more contemporary manner, Mr Lalor said, initiating a new staffing structure, and strengthening relationships with Governments and the community.

However, the refurbishing extended beyond this, to include the chamber’s finances, membership base and offices.

Mr Lalor’s expertise and influence still extends to several Australian minerals industry organisations.

He remains on the executive council of the CME and was recently appointed chairman of the Federal Government’s Minerals Exploration Action Agenda Strategic Leaders’ Group.

He is also a vice president of the executive committee of the Minerals Council of Australia, a director of the Gold Corporation, a member of the Premier’s Science Council and of the State Development Forum, and a Scitech Discovery Centre board member.

A University of Western Australia graduate, Mr Lalor practised law in WA before establishing Sons of Gwalia with his brother Chris in 1981.
